Omega Seamaster 300 60th Anniversary "Trilogy" Limited Edition 188.8.131.52.01.001 - SOLD
The Seamaster 300 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Master Chronometer was modeled on the original CK2913 Seamaster 300, released in 1957 alongside the Speedmaster and the Railmaster, the others in Omega's "Trilogy" of legendary tool watches. When this 60th Anniversary edition debuted at Baselworld 2017, Omega revealed they had use advanced scanning to duplicate the original reference CK2913 as close as possible. While it remains true to the original Seamaster, the watch does have some modern upgrades.
The high domed sapphire crystal replaced the original acrylic, but keeps the original shape and even the embossed Omega symbol in the center, a nice detail. The bezel was upgraded to ceramic from a painted aluminum insert infamous for its fragility. The dial matches the original, except the radium markers have been replaced by non-radioactive SuperLuminova. The Seamaster is powered by the advanced 8806 calibre automatic with a co-axial escapement, Master Chronometer ceritfication, and METAS anti-magnetic approval, quite the upgrade from the original caliber 501.
The 60th Anniversary edition was produced in a limited series of 3,557 pieces, with a unique vintage style box set and certificates. This example comes complete with all of the original accessories and is in excellent condition.
